Beautiful storytelling. Every Australian needs to read this book.
-- Hugh van Cuylenburg, author of The Resilience Project
I love this beautiful book. The wisdom of Aboriginal ways of thinking and acting are outlined in context of our modern world leadership challenges. The insights of Paul Callaghan - an Aboriginal man with leadership in Western organizations - are like leaves of practical input floating down a quiet stream of wisdom. It's not a harsh, angry rejection of Western views and practices; it's a gentle walk to a better view. The insights about leadership are powerful and timely. This should be required reading for anyone entering a leadership position in any walk of life. -- Dr. Bruce Perry, co-author with Oprah Winfrey of the #1 New York Times bestselling book What Happened to You?
'A must-read guide for thriving in modern life that draws on more than 60,000 years of culture and wisdom. It's humbling to be trusted with some of the sacred knowledge of First Nations peoples on this continent.' -- Osher Gunsberg * NA *

Aboriginal spirituality, culture and traditions have been practised and handed down for thousands upon thousands of years, since the beginning of time. They have been designed to help us heal and survive. There are important lessons here for all of us to learn.' -- Brooke Boney * NA *
